Steve will talk about flood science at the Carbondale Science Center’s Science Cafe at 7pm Thursday September 27.
Steve will discuss the science behind flood policy, including climate change and the 2011 floods that caused billions of dollars in damage on the Middle and Lower Mississippi. He blogged extensively about the controversial Birds Point levee opening in May of 2011 (see May archives of this blog for all posts).
We’ll use this blog post to list links and citations for this talk, and will be adding more during the week.
